Her grandmother, a rugweaver and storyteller, inspired Keams to remember the stories and culture of her people. Keams shared some of those stories during her visit to Westside. She followed up those stories with a workshop where the students created their own stories using pictographs.

Keams has performed and conducted workshops in hundreds of schools, libraries, churches and museums throughout the country.

WestSide school 3rd Grade Students, Hailey Combie (L) and Gabby Juarez (R), created stories using pictographs during a workshop with storyteller and author Geri Keams.
